Great for Trail Mix Make-and-Take
We used these at my son's camping themed party for a make and take trail mix station. We made labels for all the containers and set up a table with lots of different options (peanuts, almonds, granola, chocolate chips, white chocolate, marshmallows, craisins, etc). Then, I made labels to put on the jars for the guests. Everyone got to go assemble their trail mix jar and take home an affordable, delicious and custom treat! :)
(I used the leftovers for a science experiment in my classroom. Each group of students filled one with coke and put a penny in and one with water and put a penny in. We've observed the changes over a week. Lots of fun and utility!)

great product but size was misleading
I really can't complain about the durability of the jars because they are excellent... but they were a little big for the project my class was doing and this was the smallest size available for what I needed... oh well. :)

Great Learning Tool
These Jars were perfect for my Homeschool Co-op Money Management Class which was for children between 1st & 3rd grade. I couldn't find what I was looking for in any of the local craft or department stores. We decorated them with stickers and they stuck well and were just right for use by little hands. Each child got 3 jars, one for giving, one for saving & one for spending, to help them learn how to manage their money well. They were a little pricey, but I was able to apply a shipping promotion which helped, I felt they were well worth it. The other mom's wanted to know where I got them.

Great Teacher's Gifts
I bought these jars hoping they would work for a teacher's gift idea that I had. I loved that they were food safe because it seemed none of the other jars were and I needed something small. So, I saw these and thought I would give them a try, thinking I'd just return them if they didn't look like they'd work. I got them in the mail and they're PERFECT for my project! I'm definitely keeping them! They can be a little flimsy on the sides but they're perfect for what I need and I'm filling them so it doesn't matter. They're definitely a good buy!

nice and clear
These will work great for storing craft items like buttons, beads, etc. They are really clear and I like that the lid screws on so it won't pop off accidentally.

Another handy sized storage container for crafts supplies.
This size of a storage jar is very useful to have if you do crafts or have hobbies. Since I have a great amount of craft supplies; I use several different sized plastic jars.

For our adult western-themed party, I took these jars and placed a handkerchief (purchased the assorted 12-pack from OT) inside the jar and fill each jar with western mints (also OT) and mini cowtail candy and finish the jar with a sheriff's badge (yes, you guessed it also from OT) pinned to some of the handkerchief fabric. We received so many compliments.

Not a good buy
I bought these to make calming jars for my clients. Yes it was a good price for the amount of jars, but the jars themselves are made of flimsy plastic that caves in when you try to unscrew the top. I will just use them for something else.
